UK supplier of 'O' rings

Postby the enemy muton » 09 Mar 2010 22:31

Does anyone here know where I can get hold of replacement 'O' rings in the UK? There are a few in the US but it would be better to get them a bit closer to home and not have to wait 2 weeks for them :-)

I get mine from B&Q - they have a mixed pack of different sizes a lot of those will fit depending on the figure.

I just ordered 100 from GI Joe heaven I think it is, off ebay. $9 aussie and I don't have to get off my arse ;-) The weird weather seems to be causing all my troops to blow their O rings. Came in last night and 3 had dismembered themselves, seems to be a few doing that lately. Looks really odd with just some legs and a crotch standing there, see, Palitoy figures ARE indestructible ;-)

We have been having quite a cool March so far. Last weekend was flooding and hail stones the size of tennis balls.

I did Zandar's, not so easy and LOTS of patience is required. Some of my original 84 Joes still have teir original O rings mind you. Seems to be the 85-86 ones that are popping off the most.

Make sure, when the time comes, that you use a VERY sharp blade.
